Hello, my Loves!
I hope you have all enjoyed my previous one brand reviews, and that I’ve been a good influence on your bank balances, but today I wanted to switch things up and bring you a review of one of my current favourite skincare brands. Boots Botanics is a brand that I have never really heard many people talk about in the blogosphere, although I have tried a couple of their products and I absolutely adore them!
First of all, they are budget friendly, but you also get a lot of product for the price to which considering I use each product twice a day is a saviour! The only downfall is that the packaging is quite simple, and not as aesthetically pleasing as some other products, but as I keep my skincare in a box this is not a huge issue. Now onto the products, beginning with order of application!
Even though I am some one who has quite large pores, I have always seemed to skip a toner in my skincare routine, but as this one is a spritz, it’s so quick and easy to use! I spritz the product 2 or 3 times, focusing on the t-zone as this is where my pores tend to be the largest. I then simply swipe of the excess with a cotton pad or two to remove on any dirt or oil. Overall I have found that after using this for a couple of weeks, more pores are decreasing in size and that makeup is applying so much nicer around my t-zone.
Just like the Mario Badescu Rose Water Facial Spray, I find that is also cooling and gentle on the skin, which is perfect for the summer season.
Onto the moisturisers! I have also never used a different moisturiser for day and night, but I have became a lot stricter with my skincare routine. With these moisturisers, goes a long way, which is great when you are on a budget. The day cream is a lot lighter than the night cream, although they do not leave your skin feeling greasy and they sink beautifully into the skin.
I have found that my skin is looking a lot brighter, which throughout every season I want my skin to be glowing and for the glow to just not be created by my makeup.
RRP: £2.50 per moisturiser
Now I’ve already raved about this product across my blog and social media, but this is most certainly my favourite product from the brand! As I have had various reactions to eye creams/gels before, I think I have finally found the perfect one for me.
The product is travel-friendly and quick to apply with the roller ball instead of applying the product with your fingers. I apply the roll on twice a day, and I’ve discovered that my eye area looks brighter every day, and my concealer looks a lot more seamless and blends like a dream! I will most certainly be repurchasing.
I was kindly given this product by my boyfriend’s sister, and I’m so glad she did! You will all know how much I love a dewy base, and as this is a balm, I find that if I apply this before my makeup it allows my base products to buff into the skin seamlessly and for my skin to feel like silk!
I would really appreciate if you could leave your favourite illuminating base products below 🙂
I’d love to know some of your Botanics favourites, so leave them in the comments below!
